From the get go, the Amens are flying. '4 Now' starts off with a tight knit Amen whilst some deep pounding bass kicks along underneath. Stutter vocals and drum slices weave in an out amongst drifting, floaty strings.
'Make Ya Move' switches to the Apache break. Fat basses bust in with a bleepy synth melody. The track then breaks into an arpeggiating synth and a large amen, accompanied by an XXL subbass.
'Tougher' takes the release that bit more deeper with solemn strings and pads paving the intro. Ragga chants and vocals bounce over the top of a tightly cut Amen, before exploding into a monster bassline and sharp drums. 'Dublin Crew' keeps the Amens alive, before a bulky old 'Mask' style bassline bounces along with the drums and vocals.
'All Ireland crew big up yer chest'

The Aerial EP by Ricky Force
Mellow Drum & Bass starts this EP off with the track called '4 Now' and mostly plays in all very similar styles until you get to the last track which is called Dublin Crew. On Dublin crew you can tell that the Drum & Bass sounds that Force has been mixing n this EP are taken in a fresh direction because you can hear a big Reggae influence happening. I have to admit the tracks on The Aerial EP make for great quality Drum & Bass beats.
